Tottenham Hotspur apparently made a last-ditch effort to sign Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes on deadline day yesterday.

This comes after Spurs were able to get deals for Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham and Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis on loan over the line.

Correio da Manha, a Portuguese news outlet, has claimed that Spurs made an effort to sign Fernandes in the last hour, but did not offer the €70m that Sporting were looking for.

O Jogo claim that Spurs offered €60m upfront, as well as €10m in add-ons by lunchtime on deadline day.

O Jogo say that Fernandes attempted to force his way out of the club and that Sporting were willing to give in a little on price due to his dissatisfaction.

However, there was not enough time to get a deal sorted and Giovani Lo Celso was already coming in by that point.

Should Spurs go back in for him?

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. bruno is keen to sign for us and if we lose christan in the next few weeks we should closely monitor his form and if he maintains last years standards then we could return for him in the jan. window

  2. Why can’t we agree a deal for Bruno, get him to the Lane Now, with the definition, of getting him through the door as a Loan signing and pay everything in the Jan window. Either that, it may have to come to an agreement of getting him on a free, then sort out the £ in the Jan window? Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
